Hi Mark, I love watching your show on ABC and believe you are brilliant in your ability to create new food masterpieces by adding textures, colour with the superb light and shade of bush tucker aromatics and spices. I only wish we had smell a vision with our television because the descriptions of the lemon myrtle in your fish batter and kumera chips oops I mean sweet potatoe and other delights that you added to the batter along with the vinegar and beer is what I liken to creating a Mona Lisa of the palette. May sound weird but it is truly the highest compliment I can pay you. I know just have to work out where I can get a hold of the bush tucker ingrediants. Keep up the excellent and sensational work. Kind regards Julie aka Bossyk
